Took this trip on a Sunday afternoon. The boat looks old but it floated fine.
The cruise down river was nice and narrated by a pre-recorded tape. This was fine but it was a bit behind so you were always looking back over your shoulder. Information provided was enough to give you some information but not over burdon you. Which meant you still had time to look around and enjoy the scenery.
The cruise back up river was a live braodcast by the captian. It was very informative giving an insite to the old river workings, some building history, flood damage etc. It was in my opinion much better and more informative.
Food and drink is available on board at a reasonable cost. I did neither but the meals I saw served looked fine.
If you take the eariler 10am cruise you can get off at Breakfast Creek and explore and pick up the boat when it returns for the second cruise. (Only 2 cruises per day 10am 12:30pm).
Overall a very good cruise, well priced ($25.00) and a different way to see brisbane.
I suggest you do it.
If you dont have sea legs, the boat is rocked from time to time by ferries passing but nothing that would knock a drink over.
